The celebrity ice-bucket challenge is all the rage at the moment. One quick scroll on a Facebook newsfeed will show video after video of people undertaking the challenge.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge consists of exactly that: dumping a bucket of ice water over your head. Participants will then nominate three, or four, others to undertake the challenge within the next 24 hours.
With any viral challenge, there is a lot of criticism with some arguing that the challenge is unnecessary and that the public should be donating to the charities instead.
For those who like to kill the fun, it’s worth mentioning that on August 18th, the ALS Association in the USA announced that it had received $15.6 million in donations compared to the $1.8 million received in the same time period the year prior. These donations came from both existing and new donors.
All thanks to the increased awareness of the ice-bucket challenge. We’re still waiting for someone to challenge Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to a joint dumping. And Kevin Spacey.
